UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup

Do you follow cyclo-cross World Cup this season? Pre-Christmas race in Namur was quite a mud bath for cyclists. Battle between Van der Poel and Aerts was something spectacular, definitely check it out!

I follow sometimes, mainly top events. I've seen onaverage 3-4 races per season since 2017. Btw, Toon Aerts fractured four ribs in that last lap crash. I didn't see any US rider in top20..

Nah not really, but he was never to be challenged imho. Took it off from the start just to never be caught, Aerts even had to protect podium position

Hey guys. 2020-2021 season finally starts today in Europe ... I mean, all races will be held in Belgium, the Netherlands, or Czechia. There are no US races this year, unfortunately, and without surprises. It is plenty of fun to watch and as we know there are so many talented riders who began to shine in cyclo-cross. Van der Poel, Aert, and others.

Take care,
